UPDATE: “Relieved,” that’s what a representative of Life or Death PR said in their statement regarding Frank Ocean letting them go.

The Clancy’s now manage: Solange, Mac Miller, Earl Sweatshirt, Loiter Squad, and still manage Odd Future and Tyler.


After wowing critics with his debut effort Channel Orange, Frank Ocean has been quietly working on his sophomore attempt. While crafting together his new project, it seems as if Frank has decided to go in a new direction this go around. According to BuzzFeed, the Odd Future crooner has fired both his management and publicist for undisclosed reasons.

His former management team consisted of Christian and Kelly Clancy – who now only manage Tyler the Creator and Trash talk after originally managing the whole group. They’ve managed Frank since 2010.

According to BuzzFeed, a new manager hasn’t been named yet.

As for Frank’s publicist team, Life or Death PR, he has moved on to work with the Hollywood agency, ID PR.

Since being “back to work” in 2013, Frank has had his fair share of problems. He was sued by Chipotle in March for backing out of a paid gig. Since then, the two sides settled things amicably.
